  • Who takes care of the caregiver?

    On a recent adventure with my mom, I realized that she often struggles to make space in her life for herself. She spends so much of her life dedicated to keeping her home going and looking out for my dad, but accepting care from others can be hard for her because she doesn’t usually receive it. 

    As a caregiver, do you have anyone you can rely on to provide a bit of relief? Who takes care of the caregiver?

    It’s a common struggle for caregivers like your mom. As a caregiver myself, I find relief through my partner’s support. Having someone to share the responsibilities and understanding the challenges is crucial. Additionally, I’ve connected with my partner healthcare pharmacy that offer guidance, providing a bit of respite. It’s vital for caregivers to build a network and prioritize their well-being too.
